My friends Kara and Emily visited me at the beach for the day, and before we knew it we were having an impromptu photo shoot in the woods.

Long Beach Island, NJ. July 2014.

Bixby Canyon Bridge

Big Sur, CA, March 2014

These are photographs from my first roll of black and white film since high school (yes, circa 2008, eek). I can’t believe it’s been that long since I’ve finished a whole roll! I love shooting in black and white because it forces you to think in ways you normally wouldn’t if shooting color. These are in no way related to each other, but I figured I’d share them as a group.

1. El Matador Beach, California
2. Angeles National Forest, California
3. Georgetown, Colorado
4. McWay Falls near Big Sur, California
5. Los Angeles, California

Second batch of photographs that didn’t make the first cut from my day trip to the desert with Ian Flanigan.

  • So I went to Death Valley National Park on a photo adventure yesterday with my buddy Ian (who’s a great photographer, follow him here). Here’s another panorama from my phone, with more photographs from my “real” cameras to come. Can’t wait to get my film back!
California, you sure are pretty.

  • So, I went on a road trip this weekend to Big Sur on California’s Central Coast. Here’s a sneak peek at one of the places I spent time in. This is Bixby Canyon Bridge for any of you fellow Death Cab For Cutie fans out there. I’ve been badly wanting to buy a Hasselblad XPan to take panoramas with on film, but my iPhone will have to do for now!

    "Art Should Imitate, Exaggerate, And Or Deform Reality"

    I went to LACMA yesterday and this exhibit was easily one of my favorites. From a distance, I thought this shack was made of glass. Turns out it was constructed entirely of 35mm film from one movie called Lions Love. The director of the film, Agnes Varda, felt the film was a failure due to poor box office sales, so she decided to make something of it with this. Amazing. I took these all on my iPhone so forgive any poor quality.

    Abandoned City Hall Subway Station

    New York City, December 2013

    My girlfriend’s father works for the MTA in New York and took us on a special train to stop at this beautiful piece of history. It was one of the first subway stations built in the city back in 1904, making it well over 100 years old. It shut down in 1945 because it was only handling about 600 passengers per day. Since then, it has sat practically untouched from the public. There’s still black paint over the skylights to prevent the possibility of a German air raid destroying the subways. It was eerie to be standing there, but so incredibly fascinating as well.
